Pekapeka Seventh Hat and THe Cubs are ONE Game away!

First up knitting is going great. 
I'm in the groove knit pals.  
I'm working on hats.   I need a baby hat and a big sister hat to match. 
Negative ease is my new best friend.
It means the hat is designed to stay on your head.
Amazing, right?  Nothing worse than a hat that is a fit failure.

LOVE this pattern. 
Pekapeka Seventh and wait for it...
it is free on Ravelry! 
Using Zara yarn which has some bounce to it. 

That's the CUBBIES in the backround of the photo.
I'm beyond excited.  Katherine and I are holding our collective breaths even though we are a thousand miles apart.
This is our Year! 
Some pitches are sheer torture for me. 
The games have been long and with the west coast starts, very late. 
Bring on Saturday's game!

Finally, this is one of the decorations the former owners left in the crawl space.  
There was more.  Some were beyond broken. 
But there was a 
Santa in a crane lifting toys. 
That one had a movement mechanism that actually worked. 
The Lakeland Shelter here has a resale shop and they wanted them.  
Yeah!  Recycle

Hats that don't fit are the worst!

We, SF Giants fans, want you to go to the World Series. Beat those Dodgers. You are so patient to knit a pattern several times. The most I've done is maybe twice. Love the pink flamingo.

Looks like my Flo the Flamingo had a fancy cousin out in Wisconsin.

Go Cubs! I was wondering what Dee would say about your flamingo!

That hat looks so cozy! I was happy to see that the 3 hats I made fit all the little girls I made them for. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

The hats are so cute and I am in love with the pink Christmas flamingo!! Bill and I watched Major League last night and laughed so hard I was sore this morning. Go Cubbies!!!!!!!!

Betsy said...

What a sweet hat! I have had some major hat failures but the last one I made for myself was a perfect fit. Love the flamingo. It made me laugh and i needed that today.

Soon, someone who recently moved is going to say, "Honey, I can't find the Christmas flamingo. You got it out of the crawl space, right?" I can only imagine the aftermath of that conversation.
